I’m very picky about my black teas.
This is one of the best I’ve found!

Golden Needle is a black tea? The variety I had was white, perhaps they have it for both? Very interesting, and tasty!

Oh Cha!

Oh gosh yes, it’s a Black Tea. It’s absolutely fabulous. I think the best of Rishi’s black teas (not including the pu-erhs)… it’s hard to describe because many people are so familiar with a black tea that is bitter, almost coffee like, and that needs sweetening, or milk added to it.

This one, although admittedly pricey, is naturally so sweet and smooth!! I just can’t get enough of it!!!

Rishi’s Keemun Golden Buds are similar, and a close second. I looooooove loose black tea!

Bio

I’m a foodie. I’ve worked in tea professionally, and the obsession never left. I’ve also worked at a wine bar (with cheese, truffles & charcuterie) and a teahouse/restaurant (with excellent artisan pairing dishes) on the side.
So I’ve done a lot of tasting… and you’ll notice I bring up food pairing a lot!

I’m all about sharing recipes and recommendations, so please feel free to throw any of yours my way, and should you ask I’ll be happy to do the same. I’m also old school with my brewing methods – so if you have any questions of brewing or artisan teaware, feel free to ask.

Activities:
Drinking artisan tea, indulging in an entire bottle of wine, savouring microbrewed beer, making everything from scratch, putting cheese on/with everything like a true Wisconsinite, spending months’ worth of paychecks on Amazon, and flipping through and smelling the pages of books I surely won’t get to for another 8-10 years.
